    The right isn't granted. It is inherent to what we are as individual beings, beholden to no others save that we bring no unjust harm. Autodiathism is the natural and proper state of a man.

    Honestly, I am surprised that von Mises would write such a thing. Is this possibly a false attribution?

    I didn't see that option.
    Ideally, I agree.

    Real world time: not going to happen. People are too bred to the Four Necessities for actual freedom.

    The tendency for people to conglomerate into ever larger blocs is overwhelming. The only thing that seems to dull the drive forward (progressivism's truer meaning?) are major cataclysms such as the Black Plague. Even those have failed to halt the net "progress" of humans. It has had its advantages, to be sure - even to the $#@!-prole at the bottom of the heap, but I question whether the net results have been worth the price we have paid in so many ways, not the least of which has been our individual freedoms.

    probably better to run as an independent than as any political party

    this guy probably isn't a libertarian, but close enough (hes not part of the establishment), he recently quit the republican party to challenge elizabeth warren as an independent:

    Not enough choices.

    I say no.

    But that doesn't mean I think LP/CP is fine.

    More like LP/CP have shown us how pointless third parties are.
